BEETS!!

  its that time of year!! I wish it was a little cooler here, it’s a wonderful 100 degrees! But no matter what canning and freezing the veggies must be done. We always freeze half and can the other half. Today we got a bountiful harvest of beets, we have more beets this year than we have ever had, but we also have a awesome giant garden this year! We pull the beets from the ground put them in a giant tub, cut off the ends(but leave a inch on or they will bleed out) then we wash them, then boil them for about 30 to 45 minutes , then remove from hot water, drain, then add cold water let them cool for about 10 minutes then rub off the hard outer area of the beet ! Then it’s up to you to cann or freeze !! So amazing and I can’t wait to have some they are one of my favorites !! Many many blessing come from growing your own garden and working with the land, I could not be more blessed!
